That is a hard question to answer. I think it is more of a personal preference than anything. I use the same broadhead that I use for deer hunting which is the Rage hyperdermics.

Shot placement is more important than broadhead. Critical really. It can be difficult to figure out where the small vital area is on a turkey with all the different angles they can present. You also have the difference in a gobbler that is all puffed up strutting, one in half strut, and one that's slicked down.

Here is a decent video on shot placement.

Here is one I found on broadhead selection. You might do more searching on youtube and find some more videos that can help you.

Yes I have. You usually have to use their arrows to get them to fly better. Closer than normal shots when using them.
